This Sunday will be a huge day for sports fans as they gear up for Super Bowl Xlix, but for another, possibly larger group of fans, the day also starts the one-week countdown until The Walking Dead returns for the back half of Season 5 on Sunday, February 8. Today, AMC has released new character posters featuring the main survivors of this zombie apocalypse. The portraits feature Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carol (Melissa Suzanne McBride), Tara (Alanna Masterson), Tyreese (Chad Coleman), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Rosita (Christian Serratos), Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Glenn (Steven Yeun).

We’re less than two weeks away from “The Walking Dead’s” midseason return on Feb. 8, and to whet your appetite for episode nine, aptly titled “What Happened and What’s Going On,” Variety has an exclusive image of one of the show’s most resilient survivors: Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan).
After losing her sole remaining family member, younger sister Beth (Emily Kinney), in the midseason finale, the back half of the season will be a particularly challenging one for Maggie, who reached Grady Memorial Hospital too late to get a chance to say goodbye to her sibling in “Coda.”
In a recent interview, showrunner Scott Gimple told Variety that “things are gonna get super hard” in the final eight episodes of the season: “Every eight episodes it’s a new show, and these eight episodes coming up are very much aligned with that, maybe the starkest example of that so far. »

With their sinister smiles and dead-eyed stares, inanimate dolls are creepy, but they’re even more unsettling when brought to unnatural life.

All of the available details on the season's return are hosted below. Cast: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan and Chad L. Coleman. A smoky, slightly silly trailer for Seas. »

With little over a month until its much-anticipated return, AMC has unveiled a piece of key art for The Walking Dead Season Five.
Teasing the remaining eight episodes, the image sees Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes stare ominously towards the camera, with the main focus being on a discarded map with scrawled writing on it that reads: “The New World’s Gonna Need Rick Grimes.”
Following the events hitherto, Rick and his ragtag crew now find themselves on the road once again, with the possibility of a fabled cure lurking within Washington D.C.. Close to breaking point, it’s up to Lincoln’s fearless leader to wrestle things under control as their collective hope teeters dangerously close to the brink.
With a sixth season already on the way alongside the upcoming companion series — which is primed to take the flesh-eating action to Los Angeles — AMC’s reanimated juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down. »
